Nestled down on the lower level of the residence is the open living area dining room kitchen and a study while the top floor houses five spacious and comfy bedrooms with wonderful river views. A parking area and sunken garden at the front of the house offer a buffer of sorts and keep out the busy street noises even as a beautiful courtyard provides a spacious hangout for the entire family.
The solid stone structure on the base level contains the children’s rooms along with the safe room and other service spaces. The more open sheltered area holds the patio living area and kitchen and is connected with the outdoor dining and lounging area.
The arrangement of the three individual units is inspired by rocks around a campfire and the simplicity of their design and striking dark exterior make them even more appealing. The black cladding also lets the home blend into the forest and melt away after sunset while it stands out as a gorgeous contemporary addition during the day. Large glass doors and windows connect the interior with the landscape even as the living area bedrooms and kids’ bunk beds exude an air of serenity and unassuming charm.
It is hard to imagine that a home as splendid and extravagant as the in Texas was a dark and dingy structure from the 1980s until recently. It was only after its new owners turned to Miró Rivera Architects that the true potential of this fabulous Texas home and the lot on which it sits were fully realized.
It is the lower level that houses the living area kitchen dining space home theater and other social areas and seems to effortlessly transition into the large wooden decks and pool area just outside. An infinity edge pool with a Brazilian teak deck a spa and walls clad in reclaimed brick add to the exclusivity of this serene and sensational Sao Paulo home.
